  • Fishing licenses unlock opportunities

    The mild weather this winter has many thinking it will be an early spring across Kentucky.

    The earlier, the better for anglers, who by late February are like sprinters on their marks waiting for the starter’s pistol to fire.

    Some of the best fishing of the year is right around the corner. The new license year is, too. It starts March 1.

    For $20, an annual resident Kentucky fishing license serves as a ticket to good fishing opportunities, but also as an investment.

  • Keeton shares tips for cooking gluten-free food

    Hello once again, my friends. As I sit here looking out the window at the shining sun I can only think of how soon great weather will be here. It is rapidly approaching for sure. And with it brings all the great spring and summer foods, salads, fresh veggies from the garden and, of course, grilling. But what if that didn’t bring you good thoughts. What if regardless of the season, food turns your stomach. Literally. Let me backtrack for a moment.

    Kentucky is one of nine states whose Driver’s Licenses are no longer valid for entrance to military bases and as of Jan. 22, 2018, will not be accepted for air travel in the United States. Since the library has recently become a passport acceptance agency, the library will help you plan for any upcoming travel before there is a rush on passport services on a national level.

    For a first time passport or renewal please call (502) 732-7020 for details about what is required for an efficient application process. Don’t wait until the last minute.
